Enkisuma is a not for profit organisation which exists to support the education of children in rural Maasailand. We aim to raise funds and awareness of the challenges faced by families in providing good quality education for their children. Our work is wholly Christian, based on the teachings of the Bible.
You can now purchase authentic beaded jewellery made and worn by the Maasai community. Head to our Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MaasaiCreationsUK
2019 is proving to be an exciting year for Enkisuma Maasai Project. We're continuing our 3 monthly worming programme and of course we will be continuing to support our teacher Rhodah. We have recently sent funds to provide another water tank for the community at Oltalet Ogol (Strong tower) church where John Tino is Pastor, as well as money to service and maintain the Posho mill run by the widows. We are also funding regular adult Literacy and Numeracy classes taught by Mercy and Ezekiel. Educating parents not only helps them to understand and support what their children are learning in school but also teaches the value and importance of education. And of course we hope that that they will gain the skills to read and understand the Bible for themselves.
Exciting news!! Introducing Grace, our new teacher at Mosiro Primary School, funded by supporters of Enkisuma. Welcome to the team Grace
Above, you can see the new baby class, made possible because the school now has two teachers. Below, Rhodah and Grace.
We're delighted that the Posho Mill, provided so that widows are able to make a small income, has been serviced and given fresh oil.
We're excited to bring you pictures of the first Enkisuma adult literacy classes. Many thanks to those whose support has enabled this and to teachers Mercy and Ezekiel. They tell me that severe flooding prevented many people from attending this class but that next time, many more people will be there to learn.
The above pictures show the children of Mosiro receiving their worming medicine. Thanks to your support, we are now able to provide this medicine every three months.
Congratulations to Mercy our Women's literacy tutor and wife of pastor John, who has recently given birth to her third child Joy Naisula, sister to Caleb and Victor.
If you've seen the children on our Sponsor a child page, you'll know that two siblings, Parsoilal Puruo and Santai (pictured above), have a debilitating skin condition known as Ichthyosis. This means that their skin cells reproduce faster and shed slower than normal resulting in dry, scaly skin and the potential of eye problems. Their Mum now has a third child with the condition. Treatment is simple, emollient creams such as E45, but unobtainable in the bush. The family are also very poor and have no access to clean water which makes infection inevitable. Can we help by supporting this family with creams. Already, because of your support, the two older children are able to go to Mosiro Primary, so huge thanks for that. Let's show them some love.
